Fronted adverbials should now be taught from Year 3 upwards and this is a useful way in - it will also stretch talented KS2 writers.

This dice-based activity encourages children to add a wide variety of fronted adverbials to a main clause.

The game is differentiated into three different versions. In its simplest version, less confident writers can pick appropriate adverbs to open sentences. In the most challenging version writers must elaborate and include more than one adverbial before the main clause. This can produce some stunning sentence work.

My class have been able to apply this skill in their own writing and I’m sure yours will too.

There is a presentation to provide your class (or any less confident teachers) with the knowledge needed to use the activity creatively.

NEW! I have added a new game ‘Warrior Swords!’ to develop the skill of varying the length of fronted adverbials. It is more challenging than the other 3 versions attached.

I hope you find the games as useful as I have.
